Luke 19:3-4 NLT “He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way.”
Zacchaeus was a very short man who wanted to see Jesus as He passed by; but being short and conscious of his predicament, instead of going home or getting lost in the crowd, he did the unthinkable; though rich, he ran ahead and climbed a tree thus overcoming his limitation.
We are all limited in certain ways; some of us don’t have enough education; others have poor health; for some others it’s a lack of certain important connections and contacts; or a lack of funds that are desperately needed.
You’ve got to be like Zacchaeus. I like the fact that Zacchaeus was a visionary who could see farther than other men; he foresaw that Jesus would pass through that way and he used the help of a tree. So don’t give up simply because you have limitations; get help! There are trees in life that you can climb to achieve your aim; find your tree and climb it.
